Entrepreneurship is not for the fainthearted!  There is no greater experience than running your own business and being the master of your own destiny. However, to become a successful entrepreneur, you will need to build your entrepreneurial skillset.  Entrepreneurship is not an easy journey and many individuals who start out down this road are poorly equipped and lack the necessary entrepreneurial skillset to succeed.

There are many steps you must take just to prepare yourself to begin the journey, and once you have started your business, there are many more steps just to maintain the business.  This online short course is designed to enable, engage and empower you with the entrepreneurial skills and tools that you need to start, run, and grow you business in your journey to becoming a successful entrepreneur.
